Donald Trump has invited Russian President Vladimir Putin, who launched an invasion of Ukraine last month, to reveal any compromising information he may have against Hunter , the son of US leader Joe Biden.
The former Republican president returned to accusations he repeated during his unsuccessful campaign against Biden in the 2020 election.
In an excerpt from the interview aired Tuesday on “Just the News,” Trump claimed that the Moscow mayor’s wife gave Hunter Biden $3.5 million.
“That’s a lot of money,” he said. “Now I would think that Putin might know the answer to that. I think he should reveal it.”
“I think we should know that answer,” he added.
Trump was accused by the House of Representatives in 2019 of trying to pressure Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky to reveal what he said was compromising information about Biden’s son, who once worked for a Ukrainian energy company.
In his winning 2016 election campaign, Trump publicly called on Moscow to find missing emails from his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you can find the missing 30,000 emails , I think you’ll probably be heavily rewarded by our press,” Trump said at a conference in July 2016.
